Eline Kuenen studied Francophone Literatures at Radboud University in Nijmegen. In 2015, she finished her master’s thesis on Congolese literatures and in 2016 she graduated with a master’s in education. Since 2016 she has been working as a teacher of French in secondary school. In addition to teaching, in August 2020, she started her PhD research on the role of orality within the new cultural movement called “Afropolitanism” that has taken root in several European and American cities. By analyzing orality in contemporary novels from different angles such as the narrative perspective, the posture of the author and the paratext, it becomes clear how the spoken or sung word occupies a place within the contemporary urban space, culture and literature.
